Dear Viking Families,

May is a very busy month here at Spinning.  Our state Smarter Balance Assessment (SBA) has begun for all classes in grades 3rd-6th.  Check out the calendar for specific testing dates for each grade level.  Please make sure your student is prepared to do their best on these assessments by ensuring that they get plenty of sleep, a good nutritious breakfast, and are at school on time.  Please refrain from pulling your students out early for appointments during this month.

Please also mark your calendars for a few important events happening here at Spinning that you don’t want to miss.  First, we will honor our fabulous staff the week of May 1st -4th.   We have an amazing group of individuals who love our school, students, and community and work tirelessly to create a great learning environment here at Spinning.  This is a great time to send them a “thank you” note for all they do.    On May 10th and 11th, we will have Watch Dogs Football with Dads from 5-7p.m. on both days.  During that same time, we will also have Cheer Camp for both boys and girls.  Check out the PTA newsletter for more information.   

Also, there will be no school on Monday, May 28th for the Memorial Day weekend.  School will be in session on Tuesday, May 29th due to the make-up of our snow day earlier in the year. 

I hope to see many of you around the school this month!
